Got my first look at this guy tonight. Quite impressed with how bright it was, I was expecting much less for some reason even with all the magnitude postings. Pretty bad skies for me so no much detail was visible. I did 2 crude sketches about an hour apart to see some motion. Sorry my sketching skills are pretty amateur, and I had to more or less guess on tail direction(educated guess, thats the direction a little averted vision had me believing it trailed off in). Very close to 22 Auriga, although on the complete opposite side of it from what SkySafari was showing. That's mainly why I'm posting this, does anyone else's observations match up with mine?
